Eddie... I don't know the number of flyers officially, but I was told by one of the flyers that there was about 175 pilots (down from 200 last year). There were a lot of planes there for sure.

The weather was practically perfect. low- eighties and light winds.

Hope you can make it next year. BJ

Take advantage of Early Registration


If you plan to attend our Fun-fly please go ahead and register via the link below. You will receive credit for early registration and you can sprint out your registration and pay later. We are having a cook-out on Saturday evening and want to have an accurate estimate of flyers. In addition we are limiting the number of registrants to better accommodate everyone.

Don't forget we are also planning a swap meet on Saturday as well. Hope to see you there . BJ

BJ I registered but set the page to "At the event" to mark myself as attending but not paid yet. Will pay when I am sure of my schedule, but just checking ot make sure it makes sense to pay you guys directly vs over the web site (they might take a fee, I am not sure).

Fun Flying...

HSRCC Fun-Fly July 23rd


HSRCC had their annual Scal Fun-fly on July 23rd. This event relly is a fun-fly with rules allowing anybody with a scale type airplane to fly. There were ten entrants in the contest part and another ten or so flyer who did not enter the contest itself.

Paul Ciotti did a great job of running the event. Jake Qualey won first place with the family D-7. Phil Wesley was Scond with his RV-8A..

This Saturday night there will be a large meteor shower and we thought it would be perfect timing to do some night flying. Join us at Tiger Field before sunset.

Hickey Day 2016


Hickey Day was great this year. Lots of flyers and all types of models. There was about fifteen flyers and about 30 models of all types.

Not to mention the great food and drink.

All the pics are of the giant scale models that flew. One of our members, Barb Mower made these great pics. BJ
